The Knife, Shaking the Habitual  <–read the great comic, End Extreme Weatlth!
“Within the album’s expanse, these are moments that alternately seethe and soothe, testing and prodding both the listener’s expectations and his or her patience. They also massage the album’s plentiful organic charges into a sonic puzzle with an almost symphonic reach, one that’s as challenging, bounteous, and ultimately unknowable as anything you’ll hear this year.”   –residentadvisor.net

“Had The Spectrum Between been released by anybody other than David Grubbs, it would garner instant critical acclaim for its impeccable songwriting and instant accessibility. The artist would be declared the new John Denver, and whimsical yuppies around the world would instantly make it a best-selling record. But this is David Grubbs. This is the man responsible for Gastr del Sol and 1998’s brilliant The Thicket.”    Matt LeMay, Pitchfork
